It seems to me that these condensed afms should be called:

ma1l8an.afm and ma1b8an.afm
      |               |
      |               |
    change          change

It should work okay now.

btw, the other advantage of using fontinst over LY1 encoding is that
fontinst will provide faked italic, slanted, and small caps founts if the
real thing doesn't exist.

I have, btw, tried LY1 encoded tfms from Y&Y, and the lack of faked small
caps (etc) is something that I find a great limitation.
